OUR PROCESS & METHODOLOGY
Mediators may use one of several approaches during the mediation process. While we retain a flexible approach, Bridge Mediation often uses a negotiation methodology known as interest-based or principled negotiation. This approach enables the parties to focus on resolving the problem using a structured results-oriented process in order to reach mutually acceptable outcomes.
Bridge Mediation will provide details of the mediation process to both parties and address any concerns prior to the start of the mediation.
The Mediator Standards Board recommends that all parties involved in a dispute and considering mediation should read a copy of the Practice Standards for Mediation. This document informs all participants in a mediation about what they can expect with respect to the mediation process and the mediator.

WHAT IS MEDIATION EXACTLY?
Mediation is a confidential process in which the participants to a dispute, with the assistance of an ADR practitioner (mediator), identify the disputed issues, develop options, consider alternatives, and endeavour to reach an agreement about their conflict.
The mediator has no advisory role in regard to the content of the dispute or the outcome of its resolution, but may advise on or determine the process of mediation to be used in order to attempt to resolve the issues.
